CBS Corp. responded with vigor to National Amusements’ accusation that a video of Sumner Redstone taken by board member Arnold Kopelson was filmed illegally.“The record on this issue is clear and confirms that Mr. Kopelson committed no crime,” said CBS. “Mr. Kopelson held his iPhone in plain view, with several nurses present, to record an attempted conversation and memorialize the physical condition and speech of his close friend of over 17 years.” CBS aims to use the video as part of its argument that the 95-year-old Redstone is “incapable of communicating his views on this case.”

The CBS/National Amusements case brought to light a provision in Sumner Redstone’s trust agreement that says in the event of the sale of CBS or Viacom after Redstone’s death, the trust must maintain at least 30% voting interest in the resulting entity. “There are terms in the trust which I think are fairly described as bombshells,” said CBS attorney Joseph Allerhand. Nothing to see here, argued NAI attorney Meredith Kotler, who insisted the trustees could amend a provision.

Net income dipped 23% in Viacom’s third fiscal quarter, thanks to a one-time gain last year on the sale of its stake in Epix, declines in ad revenue and overseas operations. But CEO Bob Bakish touted a turnaround as the company accelerated its evolution into a multiplatform, global entertainment company, andsaw a fifth straight quarter of ratings share growth at its flagship networks. “We think there’s a clear and demonstrable fact set that this company is making material progress in a whole set of areas,” said Bakish. “At the same time, we totally agree that the company is currently undervalued by the public marketplace.”
